    My 1st time to smoke either one.. I received my St. Bruno & Condor from Mr. Snuff. I was pleasantly surprised. To me the two are somewhat similar.
    St. Bruno is a full bodied smooth smoke with hints of orange (Bergamot) and chocolate.
    Condor is a very full bodied smooth smoke with a strong nicotine punch. I also taste more of a floral essence. Maybe it's because I have not had either one, but I absolutely love both of them. But, if I could only have one, St. Bruno would be the one for me, only because it's a little less complex.
    I don't write tobacco reviews because I'm not very good at it, so, ya'll help me out here.

    Condor is stinky and fouls up uyour pipe. Send me your inventory for disposal.

    St. Bruno is too dark and too virginia. Send me your inventory for disposal.

    Hope this helps.

    Glad you enjoyed them!, and well described, Condor is the stronger of the two, and not as 'fruity' as St.B. When reading all the current enthusiasm for these tobaccos, I'm reminded of the scarcity in other parts of the world, and find it ironic that I can walk from home and buy as much as I want - 24/7. Another similar flake that is popular over here, but never seems to get mentioned is Ogdens 'Walnut' flake - if you like Condor, you will almost certainly like this one too!.....and Mick McQuaid 'Square Cut' is worth seeking.

    Both of them are outstanding indeed! I bet Walnut Flake and MMSC are as well. :puffy:

    Jeebs, not to be rude, but how much was shipping if you don't mind sharing. I almost placed an order buck backed out in fear it would be unreasonable.

    They also have a 10% off code on your purchase which is PIPE10. Condor is way more floral. The St. Bruno seems to have a lot more Va in it, and a more natural tobacco taste.

    I was holding out on my order until they got Revor in, but I might have to order some now to take advantage of that.

    While you're in there shuffling around in the pipe tobacco section, don't forget to get some Taxi Red and some Samuel Gawith Kendal Brown Unscented. Serious, high-nicotine snuff, yet easy to take. No freaky flavors, just good tobacco. You may send your thank-you cards to the usual address.

    I agree with you. The Condor "essence" is a bit strong where the St. Bruno is just a nice, slightly sweet smoke. A little citrus note if I remember correctly. Smoked plenty of this mostly out of a cob a few weeks ago. Enjoyed it. Now that I'm home with the rest of my stash I've not smoked much of it lately.

    Revor is a truly great tobacco. Nuff said.
